Congrats to my dear friend;ain for getting a new job with a better & higher salary.Last saturday she went for an interview with a singapore based company in balakong for the post of acct assist.Actually she can't even remenber when & where exactly did she applied for it.She was supposed to attend the interview at 9.00am but she only arrived nearly 12.00pm after the interviewer called her several times that day.Actually she has no intention to attend the interview bcoz' she's not confident.Her reason is she's not good in english as she believed the comp used fully english since most of the staff were chinese & it's singapore comp.The other reason is she has no experience working in a factory.So she has no idea of doing manufacturing accts.She also looking forward to work in oil & gas company,not a factory.
But who know,she got it.They even agreed to pay her expected salary (she purposely asked for a high salary in hoping they will reject her).They wanted her to start this coming 2nd of june.She was amazed how she got it bcoz' she spoke broken english during the interview.The problem is she told me she's in dilemma;accept it or reject it bcoz' she was afraid.I told her to accept it & never look back.She got nothing to loose as the workplace is the same distance from her current office.She has a transport,so she has no problem at all.She said she don't know the manufacturing accts but the comp agreed to teach her as long as she want to learn.So,what's the problem now?Most of us are working in unfamiliar industry.We all started from zero.
She said,if she change job,how will her sister goes to work bcoz' their workplace are far away & in the opposite direction (actually now they work in the same comp).I asked her,does this mean her sister ha sto follow her wherever she works?It's not easy to get a job nowadays & it's ever harder to get a job at the same comp & at the same time.So,she has to sacrifice.She has to let her sister goes in her own way.She has to be independent sooner or later.
She always complain that her manager was very lousy.She had to do all the job but finally the credit goes to her manager.But when problems occured,she had to take the responsibility,alone.They always argue.She felt she's in an unsafe position.So,it's better she left now b4 she being sack & without a job.
Now she has lots of debts to pay;housing loan,personal loan,motorbike loan,credit card & may be after this car loan.So she needs more money.Now the new comp offered her higher salary,so she should grab the opportunity.
She has to put aside her fear & doubt.Now it's time to think positive for a better future.She never know when will she get the same opportunity again.Even though it was far from her expectation (bcoz' she prefers to work in oil & gas comp at big city),now it's not the time to be too choosy or picky.May be this is her destiny.May be it's her fate.So why reject something may be fated for her?She won't loose anything.A job is still a job.If u can't adapt urself,u still can try.But if u still can't,u can still shift to another job bcoz' we can't promise our current job is the best or the next job is better.
She has the answers to all her doubts.So now it's her choice.Only she can decide what good or bad for her.Others can only give their opinion but the final decision is hers.
